2017 Fire Hydrant Flushing
Please be aware that from April 24 to June 30, 2017 between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday each week Water Works Staff will be completing fire hydrant flushing and maintenance of the Cardinal Woods & the Coles/Island Lake/Purple Hill water systems. The programs are completed on a regular basis to ensure the fire hydrants remain in good working order and that any accumulated sediments in the watermains are removed.
Due to possible sedimentation, the flushing may cause discolouration of the water, so please check your cold water supply before using. If discolouration does occur, let the cold water run until it clears.
Users are also reminded that Water Works Staff will continue to regularly flush fire hydrants in some areas on subsequent Wednesdays as part of an ongoing maintenance program. Again, the water should be checked for discolouration before use on those days.
Your cooperation and understanding during the fire hydrant flushing and maintenance program is appreciated.
